Look Good Feel Better is a free, non-medical, brand-neutral public service program that focuses on problems associated with the visible side effects of cancer treatment including hair loss, eyebrows, eyelashes and other skin related issues.  We aim to help women literally look good and feel better.

 

WHO CAN COME?

This service is for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

The two hours spent at a class provides the opportunity to relax, have fun, feel special, do something practical, be proactive and connect with people who may be experiencing something similar – away from the world of diagnosis and treatment.

Each class (normally 10-12 attendees) is run by a Tutor and a team of qualified beauty volunteers. Our volunteers have a wealth of experience, many either working previously as cosmetic consultants, beauty therapists or nurses.

When you arrive, you receive a Look Good Feel Better makeup pack filled with a specially selected range of donated skincare and make-up products suited to your skin tone, which is packed based on the information in the Registration form.

Our team of volunteers guide you through a 12-step skincare and make-up regime, with great hints and tips on how best to apply each product. Particular care is taken with key ‘problem’ areas resulting from cancer treatment, such as re-defining the eye area when ladies have lost brows and lashes. Simple scarf tying, wig care and hand massage techniques all form part of the class.

The classes are also about having fun. They are informal, relaxed and informative, giving people a chance to meet others in a similar situation. It’s a non-medical appointment day for you to focus on yourself – and not your illness.
